Yes Brian is right looking great, and in the pic is your grass starting to green up?

Yes, it actually has started to green up with this high 50's weather the last few days.  Lots more winter yet, but the slight greening sure gets the spirits up!

I gotta say, my physically abilities have skyrocketed this last week.  I've been fencing a few days, then up & down ladders all day long today, and yes I'm pretty darn tired, but it wasn't any problem at all.  I don't think I'll have any "being sore" issues tomorrow either, but we'll see.  It's a good thing I'm getting back, because the work won't let up till summer now.  Even cold days I can work inside the new shop being I should get the exterior buttoned up tomorrow or the next day.  Might be a couple weeks before I can get the garage doors installed.

Glad to know someone is moving better. I think I am almost good enough to start doing my PT exercises to get me back on my feet

We can start getting light snow Friday afternoon, but total accumulation will be 1.5" or less.

I got to see green grass today, of course it was because I had to dig down to my septic to have it pumped, but never the less I saw green :-)

:dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:   Gable end is complete!

Now all I like on the crimson red metal is around this man door, and above the garage doors. The pic below looks like a brighter metal than the sides, but it's just the light.

Tomorrow I'll finish around the man door, but I have some structural work to do above both garage door openings before I can cover with metal.

 

Today has been a huge success in my book.  I also milked this morning, gave penicillin shots to 45 calves, and I'm about to go feed silage.  Yep, I am recovering very well from my brush with death.   :thumbs:

I don't think I've ever known a dairy farmer who doesn't try to work himself to death.  Its part of the job. 

 

Kenny, I think you likely read this thread more than anyone else, so I can't leave you out of anything!  :smilewink:

 

He has to have a thread to post on to make sure he keeps well ahead of you while you both race towards the 30000 barrier!  :D
